Jethro Tull tabs

John Barleycorn guitar chords

    Though the lyrics are almost identical between the Traffic and Tull 
    versions, there are a few different phrases in the Tull version that I 
    like better.  However, musically I prefer the Traffic version. 

    I don't know how many guitar players are on this group (I don't 
    consider myself one : ), but I happen to think that the Traffic version 
    is also a lot of fun to play, and it's an easy song to impress people 
    with. 

    Capo on 7th fret, and pick these chord fingerings (actual chords would 
    be up a fifth from these).  It should be easy to pick up from the 
    recording... 

          D  Dmi C  G  E Esus4 Ami  Ami7  A* (Asus2 maybe?) 
       e--2---1--0--3--0---0----0----0----0-- 
       B--3---3--1--0--0---0----1----1----0-- 
       G--2---2--0--0--1---2----2----0----2-- 
       D--0---0--2--0--2---2----2----2----2-- 
       A---------3--2--2---2----0----0----0-- 
       E------------3--0---0----------------- 

    In 2/4, each "/" equals 1/8th note. 
    Intro:  ||:  D / / / | C / G / | Ami / A* / | Ami / A* / | 
    (There were three men...) 
          ||: D / / / | Ami / / / | C / G /  | Ami / A* / | Ami / A* / | 
            | D / / / | C / G / | Ami / A* / | Ami / A* / :| 

    (They've plown, they've sown...) 
            | C / / / | C / C/B / | Ami / Ami7 / | Ami / / / | 
            | C / / / | D / / / | Esus4 / / / | Esus4 / / / | E / / Esus4 | 
            | E / / / | 

    (And these three men were satisfied...) 
            | Dmi / / / | Ami / / / | C / G / | Ami / / A* | Ami / / A* | 
            | D / / / | C / G / | Ami / A* / | Ami / / / | 

    Then there's a little flute bridge, which is basically the intro a 
    couple times, then on to the next verse. 

    Does anyone else have any good Tull (or related) tabs or chords?  I've 
    been working on all the stuff from the nevada.edu ftp site and just got 
    the 20 years book, but there are still a few good ones missing...

    time though)
